Presidency Of Donald Trump: Did He Make America Great Again?
It has been a year since Donald Trump started his presidency, and a lot of things have happened. There were some strange and bizarre moments, but you have to admit it was never dull. The question is, however, whether Trump succeeded in making America great again.
Promises, promises, and...
Donald Trump made quite a lot of promises during his election campaign. That's just what politicians do, but has he succeeded in fulfilling any of those. We narrowed it down to three most famous ones, and it should give us a clue about the quality of Trump's presidency so far.
Real change begins with immediately repealing and replacing the disaster known as Obamacare.
Although Trump's new Tax Bill was supposed to repeal Obamacare funding, it didn't quite do the trick. All the proposition got is a mandate rollback, but it seems that it will at least undermine Obama's healthcare plan. Not bad for the first year as the 45th US president.
As time passes by, it can be said with a fair amount of certainty that the wall with Mexico was just a campaign ploy. As it was stated during the election, the wall is supposed to go the full length of the border and be paid entirely by Mexico. This promise caused a significant uproar and gave Trump quite a few newspaper pages. There is no sign of a wall as of now, but a couple of prototypes have been erected near San Diego. They were very strange indeed.
Everybody is getting a tax cut, especially the middle class.
Well, Mr. President, you made it happen. As a part of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, all income groups shall receive a tax cut. Some people will say that this act favors the rich; thus, not actually everyone will be getting a tax reduction. They are technically right, but let's not get caught up in the details. The main point is that Americans will be paying less for taxes for the first time in decades.
Furthermore, these changes will undoubtedly bring more investments and create more jobs. It is safe to call it a victory for Trump.
If you go past the quirky tweets and some strange public appearances, Trump has proven to be a great president. Even though it might seem silly, there is a method visible inside the chaos.
